List off a baby product you hate and why.... could be a specific brand of item, a type of lotion, a whole product category, whatever you want! I'll go, I hate pampers sensitive wipes. Can't wipe any poo off with them, just smears it. Gross!

Crystal, how funny. The first thought that came to my mind was ALL generic wipes. They are like cheap dryer sheets dipped in water.

For me, I'd say the really heavy duty fleece covers that go over a baby carseat. If I used that, then I couldn't put Philip's coat on him or he'd get over heated. No way I was taking him outdoors in the snow with just clothes on. Also, it made the seatbelt straps not work right b/c it was so thick. :/

I'm just spoiled with cloth, but I hate disposable diapers. He pees through Pampers and Luvs and has blowouts in Huggies.

I'm also not a fan of Gerber clothes. Their sizes are so weird! The 0-3 month stuff fit him when he was really little, but he quickly grew out of them. The 3-6 month stuff is too long on him but too tight in the neck, and my baby is long and lean. It's also cheaply made, but I guess you get what you pay for.

I don't hate it because I use it all the time, but the changing table on the pack n' play is poorly designed. It's not waterproof and it's a pain to get poop stains out. We cover it with a receiving blanket to help with the poop situation but it's not like that helps when he pees on it. You'd think they would have thought it through a little more.

I hate my pump...but not because it's bad. Just because I hate pumping. (Definitely the "sacrifice" part of breastfeeding for me.)

I don't much care for the Johnson's Baby Products - and particularly their baby lotion. I don't like the smell...

I hate the dropper that you use for Mylicon...it's completely pointless. A.) The dropper is opaque, so you can't see the quantity that you're trying to suck into the dropper and B.) the quantity for infants is so small there's no good way to GET such a small amount into the dropper in the first place. Stupid.

Oh jeesh, don't even get me started on that stupid doppler! I got a syringe because that doppler sucks so badly.

Agree on the dropper and the Gerber clothes! Also the sleepers that have a millions snaps on them! Who has time to snap all those at 3 AM while baby is screaming and wiggling cause he is hungry, but needs a diaper change. Spent almost all day at the mall looking for zipper only sleepers.

Two words: Daycare attire.

Agreeing about the snap pj's, who makes those?! (Clearly a man with no kids...) I have some super cute pj's but they are snaps all the way up.

Huggie disposable diapers- we had a blowout everyday in them. I'm so glad to be back to cloth!

Crib mattress/sheets. They are SO difficult to change.

Oh man, Brittany. You think THOSE are difficult? You should see the Arms Reach co-sleeper sheets! There's velcro involved, a collapsible mattress; it's like wrangling an octopus to get them on. And due to the velcro, washing/drying them is no treat either.

I must be the only person in the world that prefers snaps to zippers. I like to only undo the lower part to change her diaper because with zippers, you have to undo the whole thing. plust i like the look of snaps
I haven't really found any products i totally hate yet. I am not a fan of Huggies at all, that's for sure, but I mean, I'd use them in a pinch. I mostly hate the fact that I can't find a friggin pair of leggings or tights that actually fit my long legged beauty! She's got gams.

Ive only used pampers sensitive wipes and haven't had much of an issue although we do go through a lot of them. Are the non sensitive wipes much better at getting the poo off?

If you think snaps are a pain, you should try the jumpers with buttons instead. SOOO ANNOYING! Why would they use tiny little buttons when they know you have to do and undo them all day long?

I really hate the carseat buckles. Not that there is anything wrong with them but I feel like I have to squish her in there to get it on snugly. I wish they came up with something that only required one pull and snap (like a roller coaster restraint)

Officially hate Luvs diapers! Got a box of them at a shower so have been using them and have had him pee through onto his mattress 2 nights in a row grr. Will keep using them during the day to use them up, but no more at night.

I prefer snaps too! I only have to unsnap 3, and I like not having to unzip the whole thing. When rezipping, he tends to get very squirmy so I have to practically pin him down to get the zipper past the diaper area. With the snaps, it doesn't matter if he's squirmy. Plus, if I'm super lazy, I just put his feet back in and don't resnap. I figure his chest is still covered and I put him in a swaddle blanket anyways, so he's still warm and cozy without the diaper area resnapped.

I hate the bouncy seat. She loves it, but the stupid thing is already starting to sag.
